Recognized for the fifth year in a row, J.P. Morgan’s equity analysts earned more top-ranked positions than any other firm, as judged by buy-side analysts.
Based on a survey by Stamford, Conn-based Greenwich Associates, 815 buy-side analysts at 243 investment management firms, banks, mutual funds, hedge funds, pension funds and insurance companies were asked to name the Wall Street firms that provided them with the most important sources of advice on investments.
In all, J.P. Morgan had 17 analysts ranked among the top in the 28 categories tracked by the survey. Headed by Noelle Grainger at the time of the survey, the U.S. Research team “scored the largest number of highly ranked analysts, making it the No. 1 firm in U.S. equities research,” its fifth consecutive top ranking. Grainger has since been named head of Global Equity Research, with Nick Rosato assuming leadership of the U.S. team.
